I have just arrived at my new farm this week(Monday) at Skarsholt and here are the things I’ve learnt from the past few weeks on farm life and the experience so far in general: Always set mutual expectations with your WWOOF host, or if you are WWOOF-ing with […]
On Tuesday morning this week, we headed out to the summer farm of Bjorn and Veslemøy where the cows and goats will graze at during Jun till sometime August. Malina, the german girl who milks and makes cheese products there told us over dinner that the products produced […]
On Sunday, it was the annual konfirmasjon (coming of age) ceremony for all 15 year olds in the area, so the family invited us to go check it out since it is a rather unique and traditional event. The church was located at a beautiful lake front and many women […]

My foreigner friends always ask me where they should visit in Singapore, and what local food they should try. Other than giving them my recommendations, I usually love to buy them some souvenirs they can bring back, especially yummy snacks! 😛 Being a traveller myself, I often like […]
I began my 17 days South Island trip in Christchurch. Took a red- eye direct flight on Singapore Airlines and arrived at about 10am local time. I booked an Airbnb accommodation, mainly because I’d wanted a space to store my hard case luggage, without incurring massive storage fees for that 2- week period of backpacking.

In the early spring of September 2014, I decided to take a super spontaneous trip somewhere, but didn’t know where to. Work was absolutely draining at that point, and I told myself that I needed a break, no matter how little the days I could afford. And so, I applied for my leave a week before, booked my tickets, squeezed time out every night for about 5 days to plan, and I got my 5 days trip to South Island, New Zealand! Essentially minus off the flight, it was a 4 days 5 nights trip. It turned out to be one of the best breaks I’ve ever had thus far, and it’s this trip that made me love last minute trips even more.
